Our teachers believe that the classroom environment is an important tool for helping children learn. Room arrangements and daily schedules,while carefully designed, are flexible. Student work is on display everywhere, signaling to students that the room belongs to them. There are tables for children to work together in groups and individual spaces for independent work.
Children solve realistic problems, explain their thinking, and examine their reasoning. They also learn to function as members of a community. As a result, they attain deep understandings in the core content areas, become critical thinkers and creative problem-solvers, develop cooperative and collaborative skills, and develop a love of learning.
Classroom teachers keep a student portfolio on each child that highlights the child's progress and mastery of the goals and objectives for each age level.
We offer many programs that are suitable for every family. We have full-time and part-time/full-day options available from two to five days per week for infant, toddler, preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classrooms, providing care for children ages six weeks to six years. Additionally, we offer a wide variety of summer programs serving children ages two through 3rd grade.
Our classrooms are grouped into separate ages (Infants (6 weeks – 12 months), Infant Toddlers (12-24 months), Toddlers (2-3 years), Preschool (3-4 years) and Pre-Kindergarten (4-5 years). All support the belief of creating and sustaining a community classroom environment. Our project construct philosophy allows us to provide an atmosphere for the children to discover through play using a hands-on curriculum. Our teachers utilize age-appropriate benchmarks to guide the learning environment to cover all early childhood developmental goals.
